  1. May the will of God be done by us
    May the death of Saint's be won by us.
    And the light of the Kingdom, begun by us
    May Jesus the Child be beside my bed.
    May the Lamb of mercy lift up my head.
    May the Virgin Mary her brightness shed.
    And Blessed Michael be steward of my soul.

    St Patrick's Prayer.
    May the strength of God, guide me this day
    And may His power preserve me.
    May the wisdom of God instruct me.
    The ear of God hear me
    The word of God give sweetness in my speech
    The Hand of God defend me.
    And may I follow.
    The way of God.
